Alanis Morissette - Hands Clean



Close details
If it weren't for your maturity
None of this would have happened
If you weren't so wise beyond your years
I would've been able to control myself
If it weren't for my attention
You wouldn't have been successful, and
If it weren't for me
You would never have amounted to very much
Ooh this could be messy, but
You don't seem to mind
Ooh don't go telling everybody, and
Overlook this supposed crime
We'll fast-forward to a few years later
No one knows except the both of us
And I have honored your request for silence
And you've washed your hands clean of this
You're essentially an employee
And I like you having to depend on me
You're a kind of protégé
And one day you'll say you learned all you know from me, and
I know you depend on me
Like a young thing would to a guardian
I know how you sexualize me
Like a young thing would and I think I like it
Ooh this could get messy, but
Ooh, you don't seem to mind
Ooh, don't go telling everybody
And overlook this supposed crime
We'll fast-forward to a few years later
